Lawrence Money, one of Australia’s most experienced journalists, has twice been voted Victoria’s best newspaper columnist by the Melbourne Press Club. He has written four books, invented a best-selling board game and treads the professional speaking circuit with the Saxton agency. His Money’s Mel...
He’s known as “Geddinna Hole Guy”. The clown (always male) who yells out at golfing tournaments all over the world. It doesn’t seem to matter whether the likelihood of the ball getting “inna hole” is one per cent or 99 per cent, whether it’s a putt or a 160-metre approach shot. Geddinna Hole Guy likes to be first to bellow it out. I think he believes this endears him to the pro who has just hit the ball.
HE WAS known as Captain Blood for his deeds on the field. But the great Jack Dyer won a far wider fan club when he got in front of a microphone and proceeded to butcher the English language. LAWRENCE MONEY has preserved some of his gems:The Tigers are roaring in 2017. I wonder what words of encouragement the late Richmond champ Jack “Captain Blood” Dyer would offer?
IT’S BEEN a long, long, long time since the Long Room rang with premiership cheers from the Melbourne members. LAWRENCE MONEY shares the misery as Melbourne miss out on finals yet again:And so, as usual, it is left to Melbourne Demons fans to watch the AFL finals from the outer. The Dees, who missed out on a spot in the eight by a microscopic point-three of one percent last weekend, now trudge sadly towards their 54th consecutive season without a flag.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
